Countdown to Northland Games 2017

Posted on May 23

A signature event for Northland School Division No.61 (NSD61) is only a few days away! May 26th marks the 30th edition of the Northland Games! Hundreds of student athletes from across the division will be centre stage competing in the regional track and field competition at Mistassiniy School in Wabasca-Desmarais! Elementary students will participate in events such as the 80 metre dash, ball throw, soccer kick and the always popular three legged race. Junior High and High School athletes will compete in events like high jump, long jump, discus, shot put and various running disciplines.

In addition to the track and field events, a Career and Technology Studies area will be set-up to showcase student work, provide information about courses available for students and hands-on activities for students, staff, parents and community members. 

We also encourage students, staff, parents and community members to come visit the Northland School Division event tent to enter your name in for door prizes and to visit the Northland moose mascot! 

Please join us on May 26th to celebrate student success and take in some enjoyable competition between Northland School Division athletes! The opening ceremony begins at 9:00 a.m.
